SAE International Set to Host Six Aerospace Seminars at Logistics Management Institute

WARRENDALE, Pa., Feb. 12, 2014 - Logistics Management Institute (LMI) in McLean, Va., will be host to six SAE International aerospace professional development seminars in 2014.

In addition to being a centralized and convenient location for government agency personnel, LMI services the large aerospace engineering community that resides along the eastern edge of the United States. 



The seminars will include:


March 17-18: “ARP4754A and the Guidelines for Development of Civil Aircraft and Systems” – This two-day seminar will provide attendees with an in-depth presentation of the guidelines introduced in the revised recommended practice for aircraft and systems development as well as the critical concepts used in aircraft and systems development processes for certification.


March 20-21: New! “ARP4761 and the Safety Assessment Process for Civil Airborne Systems” – This two-day seminar provides attendees with the guideline information for conducting industry accepted safety assessments consisting of Functional Hazard Assessment (FHA), Preliminary System Safety Assessment (PSSA), and System Safety Assessment (SSA).


June 3-4: New! “Damage Tolerance for Gas Turbine Engines” – This seminar offers a broad survey of damage tolerance, one of the many principles behind one of the safest industries in the world. Although the basics of fracture mechanics will be covered, this is not an advanced fracture mechanics course.


June 5-6: New! “Understanding the FAA Parts Manufacturer Approval Process” – This two-day course covers the crucial subjects and steps of the FAA-PMA approval process. The instructor will begin with an overview of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) organizational structure.


November 4: New! “AS5553 and Counterfeit Electronic Parts Avoidance” – This comprehensive one-day seminar introduces participants to AS5553 Rev A and specifically addresses counterfeit part risk mitigation methods in electronic design and parts management, supplier management, procurement, part verification, material control, and response strategies when suspect or confirmed counterfeit parts are discovered.


November 5-6: “Implementation of SAE AS6081-Counterfeit Electronic Parts for Distributors” – This two-day seminar will begin with background information on the proliferation of counterfeit electronics and the development of a consensus standard for the procurement, detection, reporting, and disposition of these parts.
